    It’s a shame that so many of those dedicated mining GPUs are useless now, isn’t it? But even with no outputs, Chinese hackers made it so they can still game! Or have they…

    Only thing about bitcoin, that crash has happened so many times, its amazingly predictable. the next spike ends up being so big that the previous one barely shows up as a blip, previous high was like 150$.

    I just feel buying a used card that was from bitcoin mining is just a bad idea, cause for all you know the card was thermal throttled so much that it was destroyed and now you have no idea if it’s still good till you buy it

    It looks basically like using a laptop
    output display is at Intel graphics
    gaming is at secondary GPU like NVIDIA
    cute, and fun to see things like this

    At least someone find a way how to use these defiled cards in proper way. And I hope that you will not get arrested in future due to playing with - boohoo - secure boot.
    Would be nice if miners would find another toys for their nonsense. Because good GPUs are damn expensive for a while already because of those suckers. Speaking of which I still use AMD R280 that came from mining shelf.

    Could you maybe also solder a display header to the board? It looked like there were pins for it.

    I’m honestly surprised you guys never put together the most extreme eye candy mining machine technology has to offer. Throw in like 16+ gpus with water blocks and no rgb since it’s “professional” it has to be white.

    Wouldn't low crypto prices be good for mining? Get all the coins for mining when they're cheap and sell them when prices climb again.

    Wait... Windows doesn't just ASK if you wish to install an unsigned driver anymore? It just assumes that it's something unwanted? WTF, Microsoft? Stop removing choices and hiding them behind screen doors!

  • Krzysztof Krzanowski-Woźniak

    How about this... Take this p106 card and write gtx 1060 BIOS then solder outputs to the card.
    This is work with WHQL driver? Could You check it?

    There is no way of knowing what Windows, any drivers for Windows, or any software for Windows that is not free does. If you use Windows, you have no privacy, even out of the box, with nothing else installed ... so ... if you care, you should not be using Windows anyway. Even Microsoft does not know what Windows, without any third party software installed, does ... even the ISO you download from Microsoft.
